War and Peace at FICCI 57
Colombia is living an importante moment in its history, and the Cartagena de Indias International Film Festival (FICCI) is showing that moment through its Special Program, WAR AND PEACE. The Program, which features eight feature-length films and four short films that focus specifically on armed conflicts and reconciliation processes around the world, seeks to raise public awareness and foster a better understanding of war and peace.
During the constant conflicts experienced by humanity, image and sound have had the responsibility of recording and witnessing what has happened. They have denounced atrocities with the hopes that these things never happen again, and they have shown how war can affect people to their very core. Conversely, the negotiations that put an end to these wars, and everything that they risk, have not been documented as thoroughly.
The WAR AND PEACE Special Program will close with four Colombian short films that will show the public different perspectives on conflict and reconciliation. Impression of a War (La Impresión de una guerra – 2015) by Camilo Restrepo, winner of the Best Short Film award at FICCI 56, uses a multi-layered narrative to show the marks that violence has left on Colombia; in Guerra y Pa (2001), by artist Juan Manuel Echavarría, two trained parrots are used to lampoon the tragicomedy of Colombian politics after the failed peace talks from back then; Parábola del Retorno (2016) by Juan Soto follows the return of Colombian exile in London who is trying to find his family 30 years later; and Resistencia en Paz (2017) by Edison Sánchez, follows a survivor's reconstruction and reinterpretation of the tragedy of Bojayá
